Herb stem notes and limestone greet the nose followed by tart fruits, watermelon rind, salami, hanging game, and an incipient truffle note. This is tense in the mouth and showing a bit of density but remains wildly transparent. Elegant and with the sneaky power of Mascarello, this is a tough stage to be trying this as it’s chewy and long with tons of tightly packed sweet fine grained tannins leading to a long mineral laced and woodsmoked topped finish. This is just beautiful, but it does need 20 years. 95pts

Big fruit on the nose but it's fresh, lightly smoky, broad, and sweet with dried orange rind notes, and hints of earth and rosewater. Very front loaded in the mouth with a round feel and nice mineral cut leading to a mid-palate that shows acids that seem a touch low. This is fairly classic with good complexity but this shows a little simple today, though with excellent freshness and power through the rich, tannic finish. This still has a lot in reserve. 93pts

Deep and dark with a masculine character revealing an earthy core of tarry, sweet fruit. Savory with tones of licorice and a touch of latex at this point. Polished and deep in the mouth with very taut, dark berry fruit. Lovely balance, superb acidity supports vibrant, intense red berry frutti di bosco fruits. Great length with a lovely bitter licorice tone on the finale. 94pts

Lightly gamy on the nose with clean, deep, dark fruit framed with some leather notes. Quite elegant in the mouth, rather dry as well yet this remains light, with fine transparent fruits. The mid-palate is full of red fruits with a gentle astringent edge to them and tense soil driven length. The fruit on the finish is gentle but very appealing with a layering of bramble, raspberry, and earthy tones. A youthful wine still. 90pts

This retains a dark youthful color. Apon opening this offers up an intense nose of exotic spices and macerated flowers, a touch fumey with notes of bitter cocoa, tobacco, and hickory roasted pecans adding depth. After three hours the nose offers up an absolutely classic expression of intense macerated cherries, tar, menthol and floral notes that soar from the glass. Apn opening this is broad and powerful in the mouth with an initial blast of almost alcoholicly sweet strawberry fruit. Tons of tannins follow up quickly though with good supporting acidity adding freshness to the very tarry, mineral and cocoa tinged fruit on the midpalate. The finish offers up intense jolly rancher style sour plum fruit. After 3 hours one finds that same richness in the mouth and the tons of ripe tannins continue to be balanced by the high acidity but the midpalate offers even greater concentration of fruit with dark cherry tones accented by notes of earth, tar, and herbs. Impressive intensity with tons of body and showing well for such a young wine. Should be superb in time and vying for wine of the vintage. 2012-2030

Good medium red. Sexy, wild aromas and flavors of strawberry, mocha, coffee and minerals. Intensely flavored, fat and sweet, perhaps more concentrated and voluminous than the “regular” Monprivato as this is 100% from the michet clone, which typically produces smaller berries. There’s an almost flinty, smoky minerality to the lush flavors of wild red berries. Finishes long, round and full, with layered, thoroughly ripe tannins. I would not be at all surprised if this merited a 95-point score eight or ten years down the road.

The 2004 Barolo Riserva Monprivato Ca d’Morissio is totally seamless and beautiful. It possesses gorgeous textural richness and finesse with virtually no perception of tannin. Rose petals, flowers, raspberries and mint come alive in the glass, but it is the wine’s subtle yet insistent chalky minerality that is the thread that holds the wine together. This is a hugely impressive Barolo with a bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034.

Settling into a phase of maturation, this powerful red offers floral, truffle, macerated cherry, leather and spice aromas and flavors. Sweet and balanced, with fruit, mineral and savory elements lingering on the aftertaste. Still youthful, this remains approachable, and should peak in a year or two. Best from 2015 through 2040.

The 2001 Barolo Riserva Ca' d' Morissio reveals extraordinary purity and elegance in its suggestions of raspberries, flowers, licorice, mint and sweet spices. Even at seven years of age it remains an incredibly primary, fresh wine with silky-textured tannins and notable finesse. Mascarello's wines often put on considerable weight in the bottle and I expect the same to happen here. The Ca' d' Morissio is made from a one-hectare plot in the Monprivato vineyard planted with a special variety of the Michet Nebbiolo clone which is known to yield especially structured, age-worthy wines. There are only about 2,500 bottles of this wine, a tiny production per hectare by any measure. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2041.
